OK but it must be air dried, no ovens.

NEW RULE, THE ONE AND ONLY RULE THAT SURPASSES ALL OTHER RULES PREVIOUSLY STATED BY ME, THE COMPETITION ORGANISER AND THUS THE ALL POWERFUL :lol:
: ALL PAINT OR OTHER APPLICATIONS MUST BE AIR DRIED/CURED, NO OVENS


no worries, my bike cannot fit in the oven so I'm good.

I won't be using pro paint guns but can I use my airbrush and compressor?

Looking forward to a top quality 'waltzers at the shows' paint job... Any chance of Michael Jackson moonwalking in front of a Testarossa?

The stuff I did back in the late 80's wasn't far off that, I'll try and post some pics later so you can have a laugh.

Dyna, rescue an old rusting heap from a ditch or the tip, something near worthless, you dont need to build up the bike just get a frame to transform.

I'm using an old battered Claud Butler alloy mtb frame purely because its fat tubed, allowing acres of easy non fiddly painting. Skinny tubes would be a right pain for anything to intricate :lol:

would it be an idea to do the frame paint competition and them the "build up from scratch" on the same day?
